    I think usability testing and focus groups are incredibly important in the scope of web design. I’ve done some initial usability testing on my book club website and it helped me immensely. It was very refreshing to get real data from users and figure out how someone would navigate and use the website I designed. It’s very easy to get stuck in your own head and not be able to see any confusing links or navigational errors because you designed it. Therefore, it is incredibly important to do usability testing with users who have not had a part in making the site. My usability testing consisted of sending users a site mock up and giving them scenarios and asking for the path they would take to get there. I am planning on doing more usability testing this week.
